an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should understand that two-thirds of the defense budget pays for pay and salary, or pay and pension. and then you add to that food and wardrobe, and all the other things, and you only have a small portion going for weapons. but i am determined that if ever our men are called on, they should have the best that we can provide in the manner of tools and weapons. there has been reference to expensive spare parts, hammers costing $500. well, we are the ones who found those. i think we've given the american people back their spirit. i think there's an optimism in the land and a patriotism, and i think that we're in a position once again to heed the words of thomas paine, who said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again.'' >> than
and going to be deployed. i have cut defense spending, and the n we could do that is because of our fasuccs in wicold war. we nwould have got there if we had gone for the nuclear freeze crowd, never would have got there if we listened do those who wanted to cut defense spending. i think it is important that the united states stay in europe, and guarantee the peace. we simply cannot pull back. now, when anybody has a spending program they want to spend money on at home, they say let's cut money t departme i will accept and have accepted the remmendations of two oven leaders, general colin powell, and secretary dick cheney. they feel that the lels we're operating at and the reductions that i propose are proper, and so i simply do not think we should go back to the isdays and start blaming foreigners. are the sole remaining superpower, and we should be that, and we have a certain disproportionate responsibility, but i would ask the american people to understand that if we make imprudent cuts, if we go too far, we risk the peace. and i don't want to do that. i have seen what it is like to see
's not on the offensive. he's on the defensive. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: with these republicans, you got to stay on the offensive. >> bill: absolutely. >> caller: come out with lie after lie after lie. and they're going to do it until it almost makes you believe the lie until you fact check. out on the stand he wasn't prepared. wait a minute. he had -- american people have voted him ahead of romney so far. so how could you get there and i hate to say it and just stumble like this? >> bill: you're not the first one to use the word stumble. glen said that in pretty -- in politico this morning. maybe he felt -- look, this thing's in the bag. i'm not going to blow it. by getting too assertive and too aggressive here but uh-huh. this thing ain't in the bag. far from it. not at all. and for millions of people last night, you know, we're into this all the time. okay? you and i. we do that every day. we do it for three hours every day. on radio and on television. so we're into all of these -- a lot of people watching last night
are trying to divide americans 47%. you don't believe they are worthy. it seems to me fairly powerful defense saying wait a minute. taking my remarks out of context. you said this about race. you said this about wealthy people. no, yes? is that a shield he should use? i don't think mitt romney should bring up anything with race. he should clarify 47% remark. i think because tonight is really about trying to get back some of that small lead that the president has and trying to close that gap in the polls that the president is leading by right now. that is what mitt romney needs to accomplish tonight with the people watching. those that are already going to vote for mitt romney and those especially in the african-american community with approximately 90% lead by the president are going to vote for the president. i think it will be political suicide. i think it would be disaster. it doesn't help likability. >> bill: i'm a lonely guy tonight. everybody disagree. rove says oh, no, no, no. i would do it. i would do it if i were romney. i wouldn't bring it up say, you know, like right out of the box
the president on the defensive a number of times. >> the seats flipped backward, and so people were essentially on the laps of the passengers behind them with their legs up in the air. >> i have never seen anything like that in all my years, 30 years of covering the airline industry. >> you say you are optimistic that you and maria will one day be together. how can you find that optimism? >> i always was an optimistic person. i think that it is because it's -- everyone is interested in that. i'm sure that -- maybe maria didn't say that, but i'm sure that maria wishes we could all be together. >> e ethel kennedy was asked what she would think of having you as a daughter-in-law and she said we could be so lucky. she said, "we would be so lucky." >> she is fantastic. i love her. >> you know nothing about me, but what you see on the outside. and i am much more than a number on a scale. >> kids are bullying do not let them bring you down. stand up for what you believe in. go with your heart. go with your gut. >> amazing what goes down in the course of a week, huh. >> fascinating to watch. >> and fin
revenue. and defense is going to take some kind of a hit. that's going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. you know, fred, if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer or, glen, if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or glon boehner or eric cantor and they're about to go in the room and get a lot of blood on their hands and be ankle deep in blood -- not to be too vivid -- what would you tell them to be mindful of? >> that's a very good question. and i think it's going to be hard to answer it for a lot of reasons. one of which the function of time. the other thing would be presumptuous of me. i mean, i will give you an answer but -- >> i have been presumptuous my entire career. >> enand i are smart guys -- glen and i are smart guys. well read. good taste in movies apparently. [laughter] and we know policy. but, look, we're also political people. we're paid to give political advice. my poose of advice would be don't have people like me in the room and, look, we are paid or not paid through sort of point out all of the different angles. i r
